Experience Your Nature As Healer
Marlow D.J. Shami Experience Your Nature As Healer

We had an amazing and grounding program by Marlow Shami. The main message she imparted was we are a part of nature, not apart from nature. This concept is easy to grasp in theory, but difficult to embody.  Everyone who attended came away more relaxed and aware of the nature around them.
I would highly recommend Marlow as a speaker and teacher.  Her knowledge, kindness and guidance inspired all who attended. 

~ Valerie Fisher, New Milford, CT Library Program Director

Patrons enjoyed the program immensely! Marlow made them aware of area nature, and a sense of healing was felt during and after. She’ll be back soon!

~ Alexis Burgess, Meriden Public Library

I got more from this short guided meditation and activity than I ever dreamed I would. 

Mary Danboise, Ex. Dir. of the Nature Center at Robert Moss State Park, NY

I have studied and observed nature all my life (I am 86 years old) but never thought of using nature to solve my problems. Hope to do that now that I have learned how to receive natures guidance.  ~ Neva Jean Tyler 



Length of presentation can be adjusted to fit your needs and time frame: 

 PART 1: 45 minute PowerPoint presentation. Discover how everyday-anywhere nature can:  guide, calm, inform, and restore you. Nature can elicit a sense of restoration and protection, comfort and guidance. Beautiful - compelling images support the focus on the challenges and rewards of connecting with nature in a mass-technological culture. 

 PART 2: 15 -20 minute Guided Meditation designed to relax the cognitive mind and cultivate sensitivity to our being a part of the natural world--not a part from the natural world. This is an important part of the workshops message. We are the only species that has a choice to think and behave in affinity with our larger "self" or not. There is a robust body of research that supports the effectiveness of meditation in regards to my workshops intention.

 PART 3: 30 minutes I will be teaching a very simple but powerful activity that teaches the Natural Systems Process. to take place on the green. This activity is entitled The Permission Activity. People who attend this part of the workshop will be able to take this activity back to the classroom, community group, camp, family, senior center... really anywhere. Sharing this activity provides a platform for others to connect with one another and the natural world in a meaningful and healing way. The activity can be used as a community builder.
